9 Reasons We’ll Miss Rick Santorum
Rick Santorum announced the suspension of his presidential campaign. Let’s take a look back at all the joy he brought us.

"I'm sure it's not a pretty sight," he said, adding, "I probably should lose about 15 or 20 pounds."
But Santorum said he did not support a state in which English was not the primary language.
“Like any other state, there has to be compliance with this and any other federal law,” Santorum said. “And that is that English has to be the principal language. There are other states with more than one language such as Hawaii but to be a state of the United States, English has to be the principal language.”
There is no such law:
But as Reuters goes on to point out, “the U.S. Constitution does not designate an official language” and there is no extant legal “requirement that a territory adopt English as its primary language in order to become a state,” so it’s hard to say what “compliance” issue exists, other than Rick Santorum just really, really wanting them to speak English.
Not surprising, but the guys that seem to want to “return America to the Constitution” the most always seem to know the least about what is and isn’t in it.
